Strewth, you’d be a galah not to have these iconic Aussie experiences on your must-do list. There are so many incredible places to go and things to do in Australia – this list is just the beginning, but you’ve got to start somewhere…
Cruise the Great Barrier Reef
If you’ve never experienced the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef – what are you waiting for? If you go between January and March you may even get to see some turtle hatchlings! If you’re not confident in the water – you can still take in all the beauty from the comfort of a glass bottom boat.
Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
You’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, but you’ll actually be on top of Australia’s most famous icon. On this 3.5-hour guided tour you’ll enjoy incredible views of Sydney Harbour and take home a commemorative certificate, hat and photograph – because did you even climb the bridge if you didn’t post about it on Instagram?
Learn to surf at Byron Bay
Learn to surf at one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. You’ll be hanging ten in no time, and if you’ve worked up an appetite after your lesson – why not organise your own of the region.
Discover Wineglass Bay and Freycinet national park
White sand, crystal blue waters – you’ll be ready for a dip by the time you trek to Wineglass Bay. While you can easily do the walk in a day, spend a couple of days in the area to make sure you have enough time to explore the Freycinet National Park, this is a truly special part of Australia.
